In these trying pandemic / quarentine times, here’s a few things that did not happen on the river this week: we did not get reports from 10 or 12 anglers this week, we did not hear from anyone who caught any nice fish in the 15 to 20 inch range, we did not talk to one angler who lost a 25” plus brown at the net, we did not talk to any anglers who had 15 to 20 fish days on the Rosachi section in Nevada, we did not talk to any anglers who had 15 to 20 fish days in both the upper and lower sections of the California side. We did not talk to any anglers who may or may not have caught fish with small midge patterns either under indicators or high sticking. We did not talk to any anglers who may or may not have seen some large stoneflies coming off on the Nevada side, and we certainly did not talk to any anglers who did not catch any fish on adult stonefly patterns with droppers.

Here are some fly patterns you should not try while you are not fishing on the East: Poxyback stone, rubber legs,  micro stone, flashback emerger (BWO and PMD), prince nymph, soft emerger, top secret midge, WD-40, psycho prince, squirmy wormy, rainbow warrior, silver streak, San Juan worm, zebra midge, stimulator, chubby chernobyl, hippie stomper, zuddler, moal leech.
